Opensourcing the code that controls my name

Hi all, if you are following me in twitter (http://twitter.com/isham_m_iqbal) you may notice my twitter name “Isham Mohamed” is periodically changing into 6 languages. It is not a magic, its just a 5 minutes hack and scheduling a Cron job, or Azure Schedule. If want to know the whole story, it here.

if you are familier with Twitter SDK, here is the line of code that controls it
$msg = $tweet->post('account/update_profile', array('name' => $nametodisp));
You can take a look into my repository also here.

I have used Azure WebJobs and Scheduler to schedule this job. It was very very easy. and you can follow the tutorial here.
